This map isn't part of any series, but we have other maps of the Mississippi River that you might want to check out.

This map has a bit of a clusterfuck provenance.

I'll just cut and paste this from the Library of Congress page on the map:

Map of the Mississippi River from its source to the mouth of the Missouri. Laid down from the notes of Lieutt. Z. M. Pike by Anthony Nau. Reduced and corrected by the astronomical observations of Mr. Thompson at its source; and of Captn. M. Lewis, where it receives the waters of the Missouri. By Nichs. King. Engraved by Francis Shallus, Philadelphia.

Anybody that has some light to shed, is welcome to do so.
